They Said It Couldn't Be Done is the third album released by Grandmaster Flash, which followed the breakup of the Furious Five because of the departure of rappers Melle Mel, Scorpio, and Keith Cowboy. For They Said It Couldn't Be Done, Flash signed with Elektra Records and retained the services of Rahiem and The Kidd Creole. New rappers Lavon (Kevin LaVon Dukes), Mr Broadway (Russell Wheeler), and dancer Larry Love (Larry Parker) were added. It was originally released in April 1985.
Everyone knows now how influential Grandmaster Flash was to the mechanics of DJing, with his invention and popularization of various mixing and scratching techniques. And speaking of the "early stuff is best" phenomenon mentioned above, his 7-minute piece "The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on the Wheels of Steel" (not included on these records) is arguably the finest DJ collage in hip-hop history. The group released a handful of other stellar early singles- "Superrappin'", "Freedom", "Birthday Party" . Shortly after The Message was released Melle Mel became Grandmaster Melle Mel and took two of the Furious Five with him to form his own group. Melle Mel recorded "White Lines (Don't Do It)," the final classic track associated with this crew. Flash soldiered on, assembling a new group and recorded They Said it Couldn't Be Done.

That couldn’t be done, and he did it! Somebody scoffed: Oh, you’ll never do that; At least no one ever has done it; But he took off his coat and he took off his hat. And the first thing we knew he’d begun i. Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing. That couldn’t be done, and he did it.
